NET-02: A Phase II Trial of Liposomal Irinotecan (nal-IRI) and 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU)/Folinic Acid or Docetaxel as Second-Line Therapy in Patients (pts) with Progressive Poorly Differentiated Extra-Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (PD-EP-NEC) Abstract #2826

Introduction: The prognosis for pts with PD-EP-NEC is poor.
Aim(s): First-line treatment for advanced disease is etoposide/platinum-based chemotherapy, with no standard 2nd line treatment, and is an area of unmet need.
Materials and methods: This is a multi-centre, randomised, phase II trial of nal-IRI; 80mg/m2 intravenously (IV) over 90 mins, prior to 5-FU; 2400 mg/m2 infusion over 46 hrs and folinic acid, Q14 days, or docetaxel; 75mg/m2 IV over 60 mins, Q21 days, as 2nd line therapy in pts with progressive PD-EP-NEC (Ki-67>20%), with the overall aim of selecting a treatment for continuation to a phase III trial. The standard arm is that used in high-grade lung NEC, of which docetaxel is a 2nd line therapy option (NCCN guidelines) and combination regimens such as Irinotecan/5-FU are a 2nd line therapy option currently used without trial evidence for this subset of pts. Pts must have had prior treatment with 1st line platinum-based chemotherapy, have documented disease progression and have an ECOG performance status of ≤2.

Introduction: Knowledge of the clinical efficacy of treatment beyond first line of poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (PDEC) is sparse. Temozolomide (TMZ) has shown effect in well-differentiated NET.

Introduction: Because primary hepatic neuroendocrine carcinoma (PHNEC) is extremely rare, a standard regimen has not yet been established. However, the combination of etoposide and cisplatin (EP) has been widely used to treat PHNEC.

#920 High Grade (G3) Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Should Be Further Classified According to Morphological Differentiation
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) with a Ki-67 >20% (Grade 3) are classified together as Neuroendocrine Carcinomas (NEC), and are usually considered as poorly differentiated. However Grade (G)3 NENs may be heterogeneous, with some demonstrating a well-differentiated cell morphology.

#2121 Phase II Study of Temozolomide Monotherapy in Patients of Neuroendocrine Carcinoma with Resistant to Platinum-Based Chemotherapy
Introduction: Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) (high grade Ki67 > 20%) were poor prognostic and lethal disease. Platinum-based chemotherapy is usually chosen as a first line treatment for advanced NEC, however, this efficacy is temporary and there is no standard second-line treatment yet. Temozolomide is a good candidate, however it was not approved for NEC by Japanese authorities.
